Cher is the mother of a trans-person and she is an active member of PFLAG (Parents, Families And Friends Of Lesbians And Gays). She has even admitted to having had affairs with women in the 1970s (but who among us us has not?).
Never one to hold back her opinions, Cher has a very active Twitter account. If you don’t love her like I do, Cher’s Tweets might come off as the unhinged ramblings of a celebrity desperately in need of the help of a publicist or personal assistant. If you are not familiar with her Twitter account, Cher, who is dyslexic, produces Tweets that seem barely decipherable. She pays no attention to grammar, punctuation or sentence structure. She is indiscriminate with her capitalization. She loves the emojis. Her favorites include the birthday cake, prayer hands and the American flag, often not even relating to the subject matter. They are the type of messages that you would typically associate with a celebrity who is on verge of a breakdown.
But if you read her feed every day, the Tweets have a logical message despite the chaos. Cher seems healthy and happy these days. She affectionately refers to her followers as “my little chickadees”, using a baby chicken emoji with “adees” tacked on. She has really taken on POTUS. In 2017, she donated thousands if cases of water to Flint, Michigan where the city’s water supply continues to be contaminated with lead, and she encouraged other celebrities to do the same. Here is one of her tweets:

PERFORMANCE, ACTING a PART, PORTRAYING a

I follow her on Twitter and The Facebook and Cher never lets me down. Online authenticity is a carefully curated myth. Cher brings a kind of emotional nakedness and honesty that is rarely celebrated on the social media. Cher tweeted this, accompanied by a dozen money bag emoji.
Of Course trump Was Dealing With Russia He Was Pumping Up HIS SAGGING BRAND, Calling Racists,Putting Poc & Their Children In Separate Internment Camps,Helping Jared & jail Dad Strong Arm Qatar Into For 666 Buldg. HE DIDNT WANT 2BE PRES,HE WANTED ‘TRUMP TOWERS MOSCOW!’
It is my understanding that Gay People love Cher and Cher loves them right back:
I love Gay men especially. They either love you or they don’t even notice that you’re on the planet. I think what they like is a strong woman that’s having a breakdown constantly, and that certainly is me. Judy Garland‘s got nothing on me.
Cher claims that her love of gay men is from her early experiences of meeting them:
I was nine years old and my mother had these two friends who came over. They were hairdressers, of course, who came cha cha’ing into our front door, and in the beginning I thought gay was code for fun, and I said to my mom, why are these guys so much more fun than the rest of your friends?
